Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

This document requests comments on a petition for rulemaking filed by Clayton Community Broadcasters requesting the allotment of Channel 248C1 at Clayton, New Mexico. The coordinates for Channel 248C1 at Clayton are 36-27-00 and 103-10-54. To accommodate the allotment at Clayton, we shall also propose the deletion of vacant Channel 248C1 at Raton, New Mexico. If, however, interest is expressed for retention of Channel 248C1 at Raton, New Mexico, during the initial comment cycle, the channel will not be deleted as it is Commission policy not to delete a channel in which interest has been expressed.

DATES:

Comments must be filed on or before August 2, 2004, and reply comments on or before August 17, 2004.

ADDRESSES:

Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, 445 Twelfth Street, SW., Washington, DC 20554. In addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should serve the petitioner's counsel as follows: Richard J. Hayes, Jr., 8404 Lee's Ridge Road, Warrenton, Virginia 20186.
